Holocaust Memorial Day

Time marching on relentless

The yellow stars that burned so bright

Have faded

And the night sky reflecting our stars turned silver

As the the grey haired survivors remember

This modern world so fast and fearless

Yet once again the ugly head is rearing

Teach the children lest their elders

Be lost amongst the stars at night

And while we teach of tortures past

The message of an era fades

Hold on

Speak out

Don’t be afraid

This heritage is yours

For all the youth of then and now

As standing here I say my prayer

Remember, recall, record, review

Their future and ours, it lies on you

Take ownership lest we re-live

Another Holocaust.
